Ericsson, Vodafone Deploy Virtualized VoLTE In Netherlands

Netherlands gets its first cloud-based, fully virtualized Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi calling service from Vodafone Netherlands. Vodafone deployed the service across the country with the help of Ericsson, its network partner.


“Ericsson has deployed a VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling system that can automatically scale within a telecom cloud and fulfil telecom-grade service availability. It provides Vodafone with a complete solution to evolve their voice and SMS business toward an all-IP communications network based in the cloud,” said Valter D’Avino, Head of Western and Central Europe, Ericsson.

With this, Vodafone subscribers across Netherlands will get superior mobile video communication services over multiple devices, especially in indoor environment like basements. The solution utilizes Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) deployment of Ericsson IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and Ericsson’s Evolved Packet Core (EPC). It also includes Virtual Network Functions (VNF) for WiFi calling, Policy Control and application server domain.

The network virtualization will enable Vodafone to introduce new services in future, according to Matthias Sauder, Head of Networks, Vodafone Netherlands. “We are very pleased with Ericsson’s support in deploying NFV in our network in the Netherlands, which will now enable swift launches of new IP-based communication services for our customers,” he said.
